Horrible computing teacher, how can I still get a good gradeWatch
Anyway I want to get a good grade. I’ve been able to self teach other subjects like maths through the use of a textbook (we had a math sub for a few months and she didn’t teach but i still wanted to do well) and I did really well doing that.
So if I buy the aqa textbook and learn all the stuff as well as understanding all the stuff will I be able to score highly on the papers or is there extra stuff I need to learn that the textbook won’t offer
No idea about the quality of their textbook, there's a lot of free sites with GCSE and A-Level computer science content on though:
- https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/A-level_Computing (A-Level overlaps with GCSE)
Assuming you're using Python, some general programming stuff too (not specific to any course or syllabus):
Some other generic computer science stuff:
Use them to go through the subject content making sure you understand everything
If you still don't understand something, look it up on youtube either on 'computer science tutor' or 'craig n dave'
Once you have a solid understanding of a topic or a collection of topics, it is time to practice with exam style questions or practice papers
You could also try out the six - a - day computer science worksheets (i used them during my gcse computer science which i did this year)
And finally if you have queries search it up on google, chances are that someone else has asked the same question and so you will have an answer to your question
